Junior Doctor's Guides
Series Editor Ian Mann

‘Becoming a first year doctor is a stressful time...you are suddenly member of a medical team. People often feel out of their comfort zone, and are commonly too embarrassed to ask for help or advice…’

Gastroenterology concerns a large number of patients and is a commonly encountered area of medicine that all doctors are exposed to, even if they are working in a different specialty. It covers disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, gallbladder and liver.

This practical, user-friendly guide to gastroenterology for the junior doctor consolidates knowledge on common gastroenterological problems. Its unique approach offers logical explanations of investigations and ways to interpret results; it also outlines complications, prognoses and management and contains vital information on running successful ward rounds.

Concise and easy to read, The Junior Doctor’s Guide to Gastroenterology helps you to make informed, confident decisions and gives you the assurance to optimize your time in gastroenterology.
